John and Dean with VW have been exceptionally good partners. They do thorough due diligence, know their properties and operate them well. They communicate well with partners, including frankness with occasional bad news. We have met or exceeded our overall return objectives across all investments with John, Dean and VW. These men are good stewards of capital and we are pleased to be associated with them.
